The drilling programme for wells 25/8-20 S and 25/8-20 B relates to the drilling of wildcat wells and the drilling programme for wells 25/8-20 A and 25/8-20 C relates to the drilling of appraisal wells in production licence 027.

The other licensee is Mime Petroleum AS (10 per cent). The area in this licence consists of parts of block 25/8. The well will be drilled about 8 kilometres north of the Balder field.
